Well, it looks like there will be quite a competition among the broadcast and cable networks for the services of Republican Senator Jeff Flake (AZ) once he retires. ABC did its part to suck up to Flake on Friday, lauding his decision to cave on the nomination of Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh by demanding an FBI probe.

Chief anchor and former Clinton official George Stephanopoulos hyped that “Flake clearly had been listening intently all through the testimony yesterday” and then, earlier Friday, “he appears also to have been hit hard by protests” in which two female protesters argued that, by voting for Kavanaugh, the judge’s supporters don’t care about women who are sexually assaulted.
